Hi Brian,

On the Hyper-V side we have Remote-Fx support in the works for Havana: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/hyper-v-remotefx
The code will be ready for review around next week.

Are there more recent blueprints related to adding GPU pass-through support?  All that I can find are some stale blueprints that I created around the Cactus timeframe (while wearing a different hat) that are pretty out of date.

I just heard a rumor that folks are doing Nvidia GRID K2 GPU passthrough with KVM successfully using linux 3.10.6 kernel with RHEL.

In addition, Lorin and I did some GPU passthrough testing back in the spring with GRID K2 on HyperV, libvirt+xen, and XenServer.  Slides are here:

The virtualization support for  GPU-enabled virtual desktops and GPGPU seems to have stabilized this year for server deployments.  How is this going to be supported in OpenStack?
